08 CRD engine failure

With 70k miles my 08 crd just died w/o any warning. No noises, whines, etc etc. Anyway, anyone know of anyone selling a used 3.0? Cheapest I found on the net is 7500. Only had 67k on it when 8 bought it around a year ago. Only mod was the Eco tune. Again, no noises or smoke, just died and oil all over the dvr side of eng bay. Doesn't turn and big alum bits on the dipstick tube.

There is an 07 on Ebay that has been wrecked for under 4k right now and appears there wasn;t much damage to engine bay. I am fairly sure the engines didnt change between 07 and 08.

I would imagine with used ones being so expensive rebuilding it might be more cost effective. Have you looked into that?

Sorry to hear this...unfortunately mechanical things break...I am in the diesel engine business and for the most part engines go 750,000 miles plus, but occasionally one blows up at 30,000 miles.

Don't forget about the Sprinter/Freightliner vans which have the same engines (OM642?). You may search those too, if you haven't already.
